This is one of the biggest changes of Twitter which has changed the experience of the users. Earlier the post was visible with single flow. These posts also came only from those accounts which Twitter users follow. However, Musk changed the system of the newsfeed. Now you see the ‘Four You’ feed.
In the new News Feed, users also see posts from accounts they do not follow. That is, now you get to see posts of different topics and interests. This has happened because of changing the recommendation algorithm of Twitter. In February, the feed of most users was filled with Elon Musk’s tweet.
Elon Musk has also changed the checkmarks of verified accounts. Different colored checkmarks are now given for individual users, business or non-profit organizations, and government and government-affiliated representatives. Under the old system, Twitter used to give blue tick mark to everyone.
Now only verified individual accounts with Blue Subscription get Blue Tick. A gold or yellow symbol is given to a business or non-profit organization and a gray symbol to the government and government-affiliated representatives.
Till now we only used to tweet and could reply or like on it. However, after the takeover by Musk, this system has also completely changed. Now not only can you like, retweet or reply to a particular tweet, but you can also see how many views that tweet has received. There are many new things that have changed the experience of Twitter users.
